Swindon Arts Centre hosts a theatrical treat based on real stories from Muslim women. A Handful of Henna is a joyous and moving story about lives lived across two cultures, and one girl’s journey to understanding her mother.
Being dragged by her mother back to the family village thousands of miles away is no fun for 13-year-old Nasreen. In the monsoon rain, not being able to text friends, and surrounded by wagging tongues of relatives, she is about to discover some unexpected truths.
Rasa and Oxfordshire Theatre Company present a Handful of Henna, written by Rani Moorthy and directed by Karen Simpson, at the Arts Centre on Tuesday 16 March.
Skipping back and forth across time, four actresses create a bustling, colourful world bursting with music, dance and family celebration.
From the writer of the international hit show ‘Curry Tales’.
